Valletta hosts FC Astana in the second leg of the Europa League qualification semifinals. The match will be played on Thursday, August 15th at Ta'Qali National Stadium (Ta' Qali)
The team with the beautiful name Valletta got into trouble with Astana in the first match in Kazakhstan, which took it out on the desolate Maltese after the relegation from the prestigious UEFA Champions League... Still, the attacking link of the islanders worked well again, And Valletta managed to slightly sugar-cover a bitter truth of devastating defeat with a 1: 5 score. It’s clear that talking about the advancing to the next round of Valletta is very naive, but it’s probably not worth thinking that the Malta champion will play without motivation. Sometimes it looked very good at the previous qualifying stages of European competitions, for example, having knocked out Luxembourg's Dudelange (2: 2, 1:1 for the Champions League, and it also has put up a good resistance to Hungarian Ferencvaros (1:1, 1:3)... As we see, the attack of Valletta didn’t lie dormant at all!

As for Astana, it is unlikely to do its utmost in the upcoming match because a positive 4-goal handicap can relax anyone, especially in a game with far from formidable Maltese... + Kazakhs didn’t really shine in defense in previous European cup stages, in particular, having recently conceded from Romanian CFR Cluj (three times) and even Andorran Santa Coloma.
I think that the men of Roman Hryhorchuk will not be able to keep a clean sheet in the upcoming return game with Valletta as it usually happened with them in recent matches!
Prediction for the match: Valletta to score over 0.5 goals
